Getting Started Playing Online

Using the in-game server browser
To begin playing Overload online from within olmod:
  1. Click "Play Multiplayer"
  2. Click "Server Browser"
  3. If there are already running matches, click "Join" to instantly join the game on that server.
  4. Or to create a new game:
    1. Click "Create" on one of the currently free servers
    2. Change the game settings to your liking, when satifisfied click "Create Match"
    3. The IP address of the server is already filled in, just click "Create Match" again
Do not hesitate to join running matches. Games which you are not supposed to join are either presented as "Closed" (meaning "join in progress" has been disabled), or as "Join (PW)" (password required, see below) in the server browser. Note: Overload also features an in-game chat, by default it is bound to key

Playing without the server browser
You may also go to "Play Multiplayer", "Internet Match" to create or join games. You need to manually type in (or paste with
) the IP of the server you want to use. Look at the Tracker page to find the IPs of currently running public servers (the in-game server browser uses the same data).
